Thankful Thursday Design Team ~ Summer Movie

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been MIA since our last Thankful Thursday challenge, but I've been dealing with a lot at home. Anyway, it's that time again. Todays challenge is to make a project about your favorite family movie. This challenge was extremely difficult for me. Everytime I thought of a movie, I couldn't think of a project to make to go with it. I thought of lots of projects to make, but couldn't figure out how to incorporate a movie theme into it. Well, I called on some friends for help and finally came up with something. Thanks guys!

I went with the movie Cars and since my boys are all older and not really into Cars (the movies) anymore, I decided to make this project for a friends son. Surprise Gunnar! This is a decoration for him to hang on his bedroom door or wall. He loves Cars so I knew I had to make it for him. I made the sign in the shape of a highway sign and cut it out of foam board which is really hard to cut with scissors so I had to carefully use my X-acto knife. I used my Cricut to cut out his name and the word "room" and my eleven year old colored the words, McQueen, and Mater.

I used Mod Podge over the sign and words and used pop dots to pop up the Mater and McQueen. I also used ribbon to be able to hang it up. I hope he likes it. Ben and I put our hearts and souls into it. :)

Thanks for stopping by everyone and I hope you go back to Crazy About Cricut's blog and check out the other design team members projects and also make a project of your own and link it back to Crazy About Cricut's blog. Leave me a comment if you'd like and if you aren't a follower yet, I love getting new followers. Leave me a link back to your blog so I can follow you too! Have a great Thursday!
